Reality star Cara Kilbey is celebrating some wonderful news this morning, after safely passing the 20 week mark in her second pregnancy.

The former TOWIE cast member suffered a miscarriage at five months back in March but revealed today that she fell pregnant again shortly after.

"I was so nervous up until the 20 week scan," she told Closer magazine, who confirmed her pregnancy this morning.

"I've been trying to relax and enjoy my pregnancy but there's always been a niggle of worry.

"Now I've got past that point and everything is perfectly healthy, I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders and I can start getting excited."

Cara's miscarriage was made all the more difficult to cope with as her close friend Billi Mucklow was pregnant at the same time and gave birth in June

However the 28-year old says she and her boyfriend of one year, Daniel, were keen to try for a baby once again.

"Daniel and I knew we wanted to get pregnant again straight away so I was overjoyed when I found out I was expecting two months later," she says. 

Despite the trauma of losing a baby, Cara says she and her partner are stronger than ever.

"I can see how something that traumatic can break up a couple. But we saw a different more caring side to each other and it brought us so much closer."

Huge congrats to Cara and Daniel at this happy time.

Mark Zuckerberg and Dr Priscilla Chan are expecting their first child together, he announced today – on Facebook, of course.

The baby, a girl, will arrive later this year. 

In a picture which accompanied the online post, Mark and a radiant Priscilla can be seen standing alongside their beloved pup, a Hungarian sheepdog named Beast.

Mr Zuckerberg, one of the world's richest men with a net worth of €42.5bn, also opened up about Priscilla's three heartbreaking miscarriages. 

"We've been trying to have a child for a couple of years and have had three miscarriages along the way," he admitted,

In a candid confession, the 31-year-old continued: "You feel so hopeful when you learn you're going to have a child. You start imagining who they'll become and dreaming of hopes for their future.

"You start making plans, and then they're gone. It's a lonely experience.

"Most people don't discuss miscarriages because you worry your problems will distance you or reflect upon you – as if you're defective or did something to cause this. So you struggle on your own."

However, Mark added that when he began to open up about their experiences to friends and family, he realised they were far from alone. And thankfully, he also learned that "nearly all" went on to have "healthy children after all".

Dr Chan, 30, is a qualified doctor who is currently training to become a paediatrician. She is fluent in three languages – English, Spanish, and Cantonese.

"Our good news is that our pregnancy is now far enough along that the risk of loss is very low and we are very hopeful," the Facebook CEO also said. 

"Cilla and our child are both healthy, I'm extremely excited to meet her and our dog Beast has no idea what's coming.

"In our ultrasound, she even gave me a thumbs up 'like' with her hand, so I'm already convinced she takes after me."

He concluded with: "We're looking forward to welcoming her into the world and sharing more soon when she's ready to come out and meet everyone!"

The couple met as Harvard classmates – queuing for the bathroom at a fraternity party – and dated for nearly a decade before their May 2012 wedding.
